I just feel bad about it, seriously I TOLD him to post a new thread so that others with the ATX can see and know that there is another 'option' of the very few available to change up the shifter. I had zero idea that it would have come off like this.jcsolich said:For real S2 people on here think they are car gods. I mean WTF why bash someone for what they did, like or are going to do. I will be doing this personally when i get the time and tools. I did this to an old escort bout ten years ago and i think it helps the interior look better. Mother******ers need to stop hating on this and everyone else here. It was a good idea PZEV05ZTW thanks for the info man.

how many times do i have to say it before someone bothers to read it?S2 said:I think it's more of a 'bashing someone's idea' thing there Urn. I read your post and yeah it is pointless as far as a performance issue goes but as a cosmetic change to the very limited things you can actually do with a ATX shifter, it's a really cool idea IMO.
You just contradicted yourself, you said it may move a little faster, but no performance...well..isnt that what my short shifter does, move a little faster...if its more comfortable for him to drive the car that way, then, in a sense, it is better performance, because he is tailoring the car to his driving style. Leave the automatic trans thing out for a second, the mentality around here that people with ATX are slow pokes that don't know anything is the most bullshit thing ive ever heard, and ive never experienced it on any other car forums. He likes it, makes it easier for him to get through the gears = performance for him..crazy_urn said:simplydomesticsfocus....
please tell me where i said i dont like it? if i remember correctly, each and every post i have made in this thread i have stated it looks cool. (i believe this is the seventh time, for those of you keeping score at home)
i simply pointed out the fact that there is no performance gains. and that point the thread starter stated that "nope see your wrong i thought the same till i shifted it threw the gears manually ... quicker and eassier push shorter for the shifter to go!"
while you may be able to move the stick a little faster. it is still an ATX. there are no performance gains from this mod.
i would love to quit bickering about this, as you suggest. but as long as i am attacked, i will defend myself.
if you have a problem with any of the posts in this thread, there is this nice little link on every single post that says "report this post to a moderator." if you dont want to utilize that link. then **** off.
